EXCLUSIVE: AFIG adds Andrew Hosford and Kayley Stelfox to growing specialist finance team

Specialist broker AFIG has added two team members, as part of its new structure and expansion plans.

Andrew Hosford, formerly of Pure Structured Finance, has joined as structured finance director, bringing 15 years of experience.

He has experience in high value residential and commercial property portfolio and investments, across a mix of clients from new developers to ultra high net worth clients.

Kayley Stelfox, formerly of Octopus Real Estate, joins AFIG as completion manager, with expertise from a credit and underwriting perspective, following four years of direct lending experience.

Formerly Adapt Finance, AFIG recently concluded its busiest quarter on record, spearheaded by the opening of new offices in London and Birmingham, the new Partners Platform and welcomed six new colleagues.

The recruitment of Stelfox and Hosford was part of the lender’s growth agenda.

Hosford said: “I am delighted to join such an exciting and driven brokerage.

“I’ve known Jordan and Tom for a long time now and teaming up with them to be a part of such a dynamic and respected team is extremely exciting.

“The vision, experience and expertise here is second to none.

“Together we will continue to build something truly special while ensuring our clients receive the best care, relationship and finance solutions for their projects.”

Jordan McBriar, CEO at AFIG, added: “To be able to add such in-depth professional knowledge to the business in such a short period of time is immeasurable – coupled with the fact Kayley and Andrew add different areas of expertise will only strengthen and diversify the offerings we currently have at AFIG.

“The growth plan is exceptionally positive and more importantly being implemented, as we are also about to announce two further senior hires in the next few weeks.”

To date, AFIG has reported over £1.7bn in agreed lending, collaborated on the creation of more than 3,500 new homes, and won 16 industry awards.
